[image]Dunphy Complex Fire near Elko, Nevada
NASA's Aqua satellite passed over the Dunphy Complex Fire on Oct. 3, 2011 at 20:50 UTC (4:50 p.m. EDT) and the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument onboard captured this image of smoke. The fires are indicated in red. The Dunphy Complex fire is burning North of Carlin, Nevada and consists of three wildfires sparked by a dry lightning storm on Friday, September 30, 2011. The complex consists of the Indian Creek, Chukar, and Izzenhood Fires, according to Inciweb...

Fires burned along the Volga River, not far from Nizhniy Novgorod, in early July 2010. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA's Aqua satellite captured this natural-color image on July 2, 2010. Red outlines indicate unusually warm surface temperatures associated with fires, and a thick plume of smoke blows from a cluster of fires toward the northwest. Farther away from the flames, the smoke thins and moves in different directions, apparently driven by changing winds...
